A Note From Our Founder

(Outdoorsman Tony Stengel / Recipient of the "Presidential Volunteer Service Award")

"I encountered children, during my philanthropic work, desperately in need of an intervention.  

Many living withing 20 miles of local Beaches and Mountains - 

yet have never ventured out of their neighborhoods.

I decided to take action by sharing what I know best:  The Outdoors and the Arts!"
